NFL Preseason: New Orleans Saints vs. New England Patriots Recap
August 22, 2015
New England backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo certainly looks ready to run the Patriots' offense during Tom Brady's suspension. Garoppolo completed 28-of-33 passes for 269 yards and led the Patriots to five scoring drives and a win over the Saints Saturday night. The Patriots scored 20 straight points to cut a 21-0 Saints lead to 21-20, then got a pair of Stephen Gostkowski field goals on their last two drives. Gostkowski's 35-yard field goal won the game with 14 seconds to play. Much earlier in the night, the Saints' Drew Brees looked great as he threw for 159 yards and two touchdowns on 8-for-10 passing. Neither team managed much on the ground, as the Patriots averaged just 2.2 yards per rush and the Saints averaged only 2.8.
